ARPANSA regulates a number of nuclear installations and prescribed radiation facilities.
Regulation of these facilities requires significant and specialised resources. Licence applications are invariably large and complex, as are any subsequent safety submissions. Assessment of these applications and submissions requires coordination among technical experts from across the agency and, on occasion, involves the use of external consultants. Compliance monitoring activities such as planned inspections, also demand significant regulatory resources.
